Why Jamie Vardy turned down a transfer to Arsenal – report
Jamie Vardy reportedly had reservations about whether he would fit into Arsenal's style of play
Jamie Vardy turned down the chance to join Arsenal in the summer transfer window because he wasn’t sure that he would fit in with the style of play at The Emirates, according to reports.
The north London side are thought to have tabled a £20m bid for the striker earlier this month as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options this summer.
Vardy, however, opted to turn down a move to Arsenal and committed his future to Leicester City by signing a new four-year contract with The Foxes this week.
Now, Sky Sports News HQ is reporting that Vardy’s decision stemmed from his opinion about not fitting into the style of play at Arsenal.
Vardy is said to have made the decision because he didn’t feel that Arsenal’s possession-based style of football would suit him, having flourished under the counter-attacking style of Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester City side last season.
